August IHSW Done

I can't believe the weekend has come and gone so fast and I didn't get in very much stitching time - only a few hours on Sunday, but I'm pleased with what I got done. This is where I was with Germany on Friday night.























And here is Sunday night. Sorry about the different look for the fabric - Friday is natural light, Sunday is artificial light. Friday is the proper colour.























I just have to do the back stitching and it's done. And I've just now realized something - I think I need to remove the stitches that run down between the car and the pig and above the tractor. If I'm remembering correctly, that's the border between East and West Germany, which isn't there any more. Never thought about checking the chart date when I was stitching. Drat! I could have had some of the BS done!!

Looking forward to checking out everyone's blog to see how your weekend went.

Looks like you made good progress on Germany! It's a cool design--not something you see every day.

Thank you for stopping by my blog darling.
I think I like the stitches between the car and pig as it could depict how Germany was divided (more so a historical symbol).
I have a Germany chart somewhere too I remembered.
TFS.

I love your stitching! My mom is from Germany :) What is the name of the chart? Have a great day!!!

I love it!! I would be torn about the dotted line. Historically, it would be cool to explain it, but it's also cool to delete and celebrate the reunification. Hmmm. Dilemmas! Can't wait to see this finished!
